This prinoiplo, more properly to? be
call od "totality" representation, conti?
nues to make friends at home and
abroad. Our cotemporery of tbe Lex
* ington Dispatch advocates it as a wiso
and just thing; und tbe Augusta (Ga.)
Constitutionalist, an ably edited journal,
tbua alludes to tbe subject:
"There ?B an intrinsic equity in the
proposition that the minority ia every
constituent body of electors should be
heard on questions involving tbe inte?
rests of tbe whole community. This
?imposition is recognized in Eugland by
calling minds among ber statesmen, and
is winning advocates wherever it is CHB
eossed. In this country, and especially
in some of the Southern States, it is one
entitled to tbe gravest consideration, nod,
it is to be boped, will be allowed a prac?
tical test. lu South Carolina, it pre
Bents itself as a peaceful solution of the
tremendous difficulty that ignorant oud
vicious negro domination presents. In
no other way dues relief without violence
Boom feasible. The question will bo be?
fore the convention of tax-ptyers, at
Columbia, the Becond "Weduo.-duy iu
May, and will be fully discussed."
The Anderson Intelligencer adds its
voice to the many that have been raised
in behalf-of tbe equitable principle of
minority representation under the ope?
ration of the "cumulative system" of
Totiug. The Intelligencer gives solid
Views ia behalf of this measure of re?
form. It regards it "a safety-valve for
all our. troubles," and it-remarks that
"tho passage of such a measure would
do more to raise the hopes and quiet the
apprehensions of the native white popu?
lation than any Biugle act within their
power. It would beget confidence in
our ability, by this means, to prevent
wholesale plundering in the future, and
witb this much accomplished, we might
afford to put the post-even the black?
ened record of the last three years of
misrule-away behind ns, and go for?
ward in the oarnest bope of build i ng up
shattered fortunes, and fully developing
the great, unbounded resources of this
noble old State, whiob is dear to ns amid
misery and misfortunes.*' "
The. Greenville Enterprise advocates
as a remedy for Legislative abuses a
property qualification ia all voters for
the members of the State Senate. Jt
eaya that the proposal to secure minority
representation is a good measure and
ought to be carried out, bat this alone
would cot relieve the State. Hence,
our ootemporary argues that it ought to
Be linked with that ' other provision

property to entitle tho citizen to vote for
A PBAOTIOAII ENOOUBAOEMENT OF TM iii

Charleston propose to adopfa. very sen?
sible and practical plan for the encou?
ragement of immigration, which might
be imitated witb tho most beneficial re?
sults by our German friends in Augusta.
Tbe Courier says:
It is being seriously thought of by our
Gorman population, at tim suggestion of
Gen. John A. Wagen er, to purchase a
farm in the Buburba, for the purpose of
locating immigrants as they arrive in tbe
city, and where they can be kindly taken

TAXATION.ON RAILROADS.-This ques?
tion was before the United States Cir
cuit Court yesterday, nuder bills of in
junction filed by stockholders Of tin
Sooth Carolin) Railroad Company, ol
the North-eastern Hail road Com puny,
and the Oheraw and Darlington Railroad
Company, against the tax collectors and
sh en ITs of tbe State, in the case of tbe
taxes imposed by tho State, and against
the City Council of Charleston aud itt
officers in tbe case of tuxes imposed by
the city. The stockholders of tbo Rail?
road Companies claimed that tbe express
exemptions granted by the Legislature
to the several companies by their re?
spective charters were contracts between
the State and tbe corporations, whiob
were beyond the power of the Legisla'
turo to impair. Aftor argument, tbe

He pub l loi? ii TiHlmuny.
Dr. J. Winsmith, writing in "the Spar?
tan," in reforenoe to the subjeot of taxa?
tion and the May convention, and in re
ply to tho statements of a Hu publican
"It is the amount of taxes collected,
and not the rate per cent, of taxation,
whiob materially coocerns the tax-pay?
ers. If the rate of taxation should not
even have been higher than in former
years, but should the assessors have been
goaded up to assess property at twice,
thrice, or, even four times as much as
formerly, it is easy to see that tho aggre?
gate amount of taxes will bo twice, thrice
or four times as inuob as before. And
this is the thing complained of now; tho
tax-payers oaunot bo deceived in thin
mutter, and they feol and comprehend it
in its true light..
"I seo from the Comptroller-General's
report, for 185G, that the gross amount
of taxes paid into the Trensury that year
was $532,741.14, which amount, it ap?
pears, was quito sufficient to carry on the
government ut that time.. But ns that
was before tho war, allow me to call your
attention to report of Comptroller-Ge?
neral for the year 1866, und, by reference
to whiob report, you will, see that the
gross amount of taxos paid into tbe
Treasury for that year wus $419,668.75.
Under this state of facts, Mr. Editor,
how can the tax-payers fail to exclaim:
How can it be possible that if only
3119.668 73 was paid into the Treasury
ni 1866, aud found sufficient to carry on
tbe goverument, that they shall be culled
ou to pay more than four times that
amount iu the spring, and also required
0 pay a like amount in the ensuing No?
vember?' I buve beard only ono reason
given for the collection of this second
tax during tbe preseut year, and that is
'that thu people can pay more easily in
November than in the spring of the
year.' That is a great mistake, as it has
boen proveo, by long experience, that
tax-payers can make their payments j
more easily from the 1st of March until ?
the 1st of June than at any other period
of the year. But should the Legislature
come to the conclusion that these pay?
ments cac bo more readily made in No?
vember, just postpone the farther pay?
ment of taxes until November, 1872, and
1 feel confident the tax-payers would be
satisfied with the arrangement. Truly
the enormous amount of taxes already
collected thia year will be quito sufficient
lo keep the government in motion .until
November, 1872. And let me bog you,
Air. Editor, not to indulge for a moment
tho belief that opposition to the pay?
ment of the November tax is only enter?
tained by a few persons who control
public opinion and tbe press in tbe seve?
ral Counties of tbe State. So fur from
that being tbs oase, this opposition is al?
most unanimous, and the call for a con?
vention meets with concurrence of tax?
payers almost without exception. Nor
is il because this proposition for a con?
vention was made by the 'Chamber of
Commerce,' or 'Board of Trade,' of
Charleston, that tux-payers approve of
il; but because the propositiou was in
n-'oordance with a well matured and fully
developed senti meut of Opposition en?
tertained almost unanimously by the tax?
payers of tbe State.
"The convention, Mr. Editor, will be
hold. I hope the delegates selected will
bo prudent, discreet mon; statesmen im?
bued with principles of justice und actu?
ated by a patriotio devotion to the inter
j eats of tho State, ready to approve the
I right and equally ready to rebuke cor
I i a p ti o ii and wrong."
CONNECTICUT ELECTION.-The Boston
Post says that the official count of tbe
vote in Connocticutshows Ibat Governor
English is re-elected by a clear majority.
Tho Board of Canvassers, consisting of
tho Stute Treasurer, the Comptroller aud
the Secretary of State, met yesterday
and canvas.ed tho gubernatorial vote,
alli rmi nu tho above result. The total
vote, 91.981), is thu largest ever cast in
tbo State, and it is remarkable that, with
such u full electoral representation, the
vote should be so close. Of tbo eutiro
State, Eugliah received 47,490 and Jewell
47,150, with seventeen scattering, leav
mi; English a clear majority of twenty
three. This is exactly the number of
votes whiob tho Radicals claim should
be added in fuvor of Jowoll from Che?
shire, whiob would then make it a tie.
But, of tbe scattering votes, six are for
"J. E. EugliHb" and "J. English;" and
if, when tho Legislature-pronounces tho
mutter, it counts these votes for Gov.
English, as the law directs, tho Demo?
cratic candidato will bave six majority
over all. The Radicule rest all their
hopes upon the Legislature, which, be?
ing strongly of their stripo, may do
soma curious things/ But tho official
count hus determined that Gov. English
is elected by tho people, and he will
doubtless lead tho procession on tho 3d

DEATH OF A NOTORIOUS * BBIOAND.
Onicche, the brigand of Arezzo, Italy,
t?as shot recently by the King's carbi?
neers. He was, it ia said, the terror,
but also tho boast of the neighborhood;
and, no le.-s from admiration thou from
b-ar, ho was always sore, so long ns be
could elude ibo bloodhounds of the law,

posts, usually so coveted in Italy, were

brave, who soon came along singing a
vispeito, or love song, and they de?

years' service in the Turkish urmy, ho
was made Generalissimo of ibo Turkish
